Welcome You are not currently logged in. What's New at IAFF Local 21
Saint Paul Firefighters IAFF Local 21 is proud to announce that our 21 newest members will be hitting the streets, some reporting for duty as early as 0800 hours tomorrow morning. Their graduation is some much needed relief to our frontline that are responding to a record-breaking number of calls for service every day.
No rest for the weary. This group is eager after 9 weeks of a grueling Fire Academy notorious for high intensity training and peak physical conditioning. All of which rose to the occasion, tackled the challenges and have earned their rank amongst our Membership. We are excited to welcome you to the family! Congratulations and we'll be seeing you on the streets!
The Recruit Academy graduation ceremony will be held at the Highland Recreation Center (1978 Ford Parkway) at 1pm. For those that are unable to attend in person, the event will be live streamed on the City of Saint Paul's YouTube channel. Click HERE to be redirected.
